28/06/2024 | 10:55:33 Thank you very much, Mr President, Mr Simon MOUTQUIN quite rightly mentioned in his introduction that the Council of Europe is part of a larger multilateral system. And I would like to mention the United Nations in two different ways. Firstly, you probably know that the Summit of the Future will take place in New York in September this year, which of course also has future generations specifically in mind in the document that has been presented so far. And what I found very interesting is... 27/06/2024 | 18:26:47 The Socialists, Democrats and Greens Group condemns the atrocities committed by Hamas on the 7 October and afterwards, and it calls for the immediate release of the Israeli hostages.

Threats against women human rights defenders differ from ordinary threats against other individuals or groups who act in a peaceful and legal way to promote and protect human rights. The threats against women human rights defenders target their... 24/06/2024 | 17:08:37 Thank you very much, Madam President. Yeah, rules of procedure are made to co-ordinate our work, to avoid disputes, and if there are disputes, to help us to settle them and the changes we debate today have been discussed for a quite long time. I want to thank Ms Ingjerd Schie SCHOU for her long breath and her patience with us because it was not easy. But to be honest, it might not be totally over, the changes of the rules of procedure, because besides robust rules, we also need the engagement...
